Frequently Asked Questions
This is a brief list of the most frequently asked questions received here at Dancing Lights Press. This page will be updated regularly to reflect the most current questions and answers.
Will any Dancing Lights Press titles be available in print?
Print-on-demand editions are being developed. At some point most existing titles will have a POD option. Eventually it will be standard operating procedure for new releases to have a POD option. It’s just a matter of time and resources, both of which are oppressively finite.
When will [title] be released?
It’s the policy of Dancing Lights Press to not announce exact release dates for upcoming titles. The reason is simple: I’m a one-person shop. If I come down with the flu, fall down the stairs, or get hit by a bus, there’s no one else to pick up the slack and make sure things get released on time. Rather than disappoint anyone, I don’t make promises that I may not be able to keep.
Will you ever do a Kickstarter for [title]?
The short answer is no. See the answer directly above. Crowdfunding is great for many people, but it’s not my style. I would rather sell you a book that already exists than ask you to give me money now in return for a promise that I’ll write it later. I’m oddly old-fashioned that way. When I write a book, I also want to focus on that book, not a bunch of additional backer rewards.
Why do your books have little or no artwork in them?
That’s a complex question with an answer that some people don’t like or agree with. Fortunately, there’s a whole post devoted to it, which you can read here.
